Some Sewing and Thank-yous

I got caught up on some of my sewing... these are blocks 6 and 7 from the Jelly Roll Sampler sew along.

The red and green one is my favorite so far, the other one..... I am not sure of yet!


I have purchased this book and I plan on making one of the mini quilts inside. Then I can join in on the fun at Cottage Charm Quilts. The mini quilts use charm packs and there are a couple that seem beginner friendly.I plan on looking through my stash tomorrow and finalizing my choice.

And now I would like to send out heart felt thanks to all of the wonderful friends that voted for me at Barbs Accuquilt Go give away! If you have been following the voting at all you know that it is a HOT contest between Sew Meow and Call Me Crazy.... not sure who will win, but boy it has been fun to share in the excitement!
But I wanted you all to know that I appreciate you taking the time to vote for me!!! It is nice to know you guys care! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥  THANK YOU.........

Now check out this link for an interesting song and video about God.....


  1. I need to do the most recent block for the jelly roll quilt-along.......somehow it got put aside and if I don't do it right away, I seem to be in trouble. LOL I am also not thrilled with some of them, but I'll finish the project now...at least the blocks...not sure when they'll be made into a top.

  2. I also like the red and green block. Those fabrics/colors would make a great quilt. The GoD and DoG video is so true! That book looks like fun!

  3. I love both blocks!! They both move my eye to the different fabrics and I really like the diagional fabric on the blue blocks ...now if only I could spell this morning I'd be okay :)

  4. Sheila, I love both of your blocks, and I really do like the second one. I love that little square in the middle with the star-burst thingy!

    I've seen that God and Dog video before and I absolutely love it! And it is so true!!

    I've been keeping an eye on that GO give away race over on Barb's blog. I was so hoping you'd win. But I'm sure there are other GO give aways out in blog land...you should Google that and see what comes up. Maybe you could enter some other contests?



    P.S. Be sure to come by my blog sometime tomorrow...I'm going to be posting my June give away! :o)

  5. What a sweet video and song! Thanks for sharing it. I hope you win the vote :-)

  6. Hi Sheila,

    Thanks for the fun in the GO contest! Am glad we met through this since we both are cat & animal lovers....plus quilters.

    Now, let's get back to sewing/quilting. Your blocks are great, and I really like the green and red one. The jelly roll sampler sew along sounds like great fun. Enjoy!


  7. Sorry you didn't win a GO. :( There are other giveawsys going on now too. I like your jelly roll blocks. I need to make the new one yet. I bought the Scribbles book too. I tried to resist, but I had to see what the buzz was about. Enjoyed the video. Hugs

  8. Cute blocks! Love your fabric. And, I'm so excited you'll be joining us in the Schnibbles Contest! Can't wait to see which quilt and fabric you choose!

  9. Love both your blocks Sheila.. but my favourite is the green and red also. It was fun to make too. I love how different all these blocks have been so far.


Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. You made my day!
